Book Review – Matilda by Nimra


Title: Matilda

Author: Roald Dahl

Illustrator: Quentin Blake

Characters: Matilda, Mr and Mrs Wormwood, Miss Honey, Miss Trunchbull


I enjoyed this book so much. The story describes how Matilda’s parents are mean to her. However, she still manages to take regular trips to the library. She is very clever even though she is only five years old. The story explains how Matilda went to school with a teacher called Miss Honey. Matilda found out that she had a magic power whilst also tackling a very mean head teacher. I would recommend this book to other pupils.

  1. I have really enjoyed reading the review and it reminds me of the scene when Mrs Trunchbull gets the girl by her pigtails and throws the girl over the school fence.


  2. I really like Matilda too. My favourite part is when Mrs Trunchbull spins on the big round ball (in Matilda’s class). Great job Nimra I am very proud of you keep up the good effort!
